Sven-Goran Eriksson insists Carling Cup hero Georgios Samaras has a future at Manchester City.

Overlooked completely throughout Eriksson´s reign so far, Samaras was finally handed his chance against Coca-Coal Championship strugglers Norwich at Eastlands on Tuesday night and responded in the perfect manner, netting an 89th-minute winner to take City into the last 16.

Eriksson was so unconvinced by his talent he told Samaras he should look for another club before the transfer window shut in August, however, following his winner the Swede said: "Georgios has a contract here and he has a future here. If he carries on playing like that, I will use him."
